Toque for Little Boy, c.1890

Knitted Toque Or Hat For A Little Boy, c1890

Procure 2ozs of Alloa yarn or 5 ply Scotch fingering, any colour that is preferred and four No.12 steel knitting needles. Cast 30 stitches on each of three needles, which will give 90 stitches in the round, and knit the fourth needle. Work round and round in ribbing, 3 stitches plain and 3 stitches purl, till 40 rounds are done; this is for the "turnover" and for the part under the turnover. Then knit 20 rounds plain.

21st Round:  Knit 2 together, knit 7 and repeat the same to the end.

Knit 6 plain rounds.

28th Round:  Knit 2 together, knit 6 and repeat.

Knit 5 plain rounds.

34th Round:  Knit 2 together, knit 5 and repeat.

Knit 4 plain rounds.

39th Round:  Knit 2 together, knit 4 and repeat.

Knit 3 plain rounds.

43rd Round:  Knit 2 together, knit 3 and repeat.

Knit 3 plain rounds.

47th Round:  Knit 2 together, knit 2 and repeat.

Knit 2 plain rounds.

50th Round:  Knit 2 together, all round; this reduces the stitches to 5 on each of the three needles.

Break off the wool with a long end; thread the end in a rug needle and gather up the stitches closely together for the point of the toque. Make a thick wool tassel to place on the point and bend the point down as shown in the engraving, retaining it by a stitch or two.
